Simple "Hello World" example for Cyclone II kit (or DE0) in VHDL for VGA monitor

Hi, 

 

does anybody know where can I find a simple "Hello World" example for Cyclone II kit (or DE0) in VHDL for VGA monitor? 

What goes to the screen can be the message above or a simple figure (a rectangle, for instance). 

 

Best wishes

Hi, 

 

i found one solution. 

 

In this link (http://eewiki.net/pages/viewpage.action?pageid=15925278) there is a basic example which was in schematic and prepared for the DE2-115 kit. 

 

I adapted this example for VHDL (non-schematic) and prepared it for the Cyclone II Starter Development Kit. 

The compressed project file is attached, if it can be usefull for others.

Hi Jaraqui, 

 

Thanks for sharing your work ! It is very useful indeed.  

 

Do you mind if we put it on our website as a reference for those who are also looking for resources about VGA controller in VHDL ?

Hi Dav, 

 

feel free to share and use! I think the link http://eewiki.net/pages/viewpage.action?pageid=15925278 is also important to be referenced together with the code for the sake of better comprehension.
